[NEWS] Boyfriend are the ambassadors for the 20th Women Football Match!

Posted: 15 Apr 2012 08:50 AM PDT


Six member "flower boyband" group Boyfriend has started promotions for the 20th Nationwide Football Match as ambassadors. They took the baton from last year's ambassadors, Rainbow, to promote the beauty of women's football to football fans. Made up of six members, Jeongmin, Youngmin, Kwangmin, Donghyun, Hyunseong and Minwoo, Boyfriend happily said: "Seeing girls of our age show off their superb football skills, we feel really immersed in the magnificence of football, and we're honoured to be the ambassadors for women's football, which has a long history."

Although they are not national players of football, but they have played football before, and also watched football matches on television as fans. To be precise, group maknae twins Youngmin and Kwangmin excitedly said: "Now the women's football team's key player has a beautiful smile that suits her nickname Meixi really well, really superb." During the photoshoot for the promotional poster, the members wore national football jerseys with their names on it, completing it with football shoes and a football. The members of Boyfriend said: "The players participating in this match are all really confident, and the best is that they will have good memories of the match. To ensure that they are able to play to their best during the match, we appeal to football fans to support them."

Due to the fact that an idol group is the ambassador, the female players are all really excited. A participant of this match said: "I only watched singers on TV and have never seen them so up close. It's really magical. We hope to gain some power from them, and hopefully we'll end our failures." This match, started in 1993, is South Korea's first women's football competition, and was hosted by Sports Seoul and Korea's Football Association. Into it's 20th year, this time there will be 56 teams, and the competition will be held from the 13th to the 22nd (of April) in schools in Korea.

[VIDEOS] Jaejoong in MBC’s K-Pop Star Documentary for Kim Hyun Joong!

Posted: 15 Apr 2012 08:16 AM PDT


The conversation was about when they were living together for about a year.And oh yes, the scene was filmed in Jaejoong's restaurant, BUM's Story. (address attached below)
Jaejoong and HyunJoong are both very busy with their respective schedules, they were only be able to see each other in around 1- 2 months time.
Jaejoong said when HyunJoong was in Korea, Jaejoong was overseas and HyunJoong said because of his drama, he can't go back home.
HyunJoong said whenever he had a hard time, Jaejoong wrote him a letter and put it under his pillow telling HyunJoong that whenever he has difficulties, he should tell Jaejoong.  Jaejoong told HyunJoong not to drink alone and tell him his story and he will listen to him.
And about the letter that Jaejoong wrote, HyunJoong still has it. (it's still in his safety box, apparently!)
HyunJoong did write back to Jaejoong saying: "Hyung, I'm sorry I cannot do much for you and thank you for all you've done"
And Jaejoong felt a little awkward/embarrassed (?) about men writing letters to each other ㅋㅋ
HyunJoong said that even if they are in different teams, they can agree with each other a lot. Both of them said that even if they are in the same group, there's still some things that they couldn't tell each other about. Jaejoong said that there is pain that he has to endure himself, from the external pressure as well. (there's something here I feel…I don't know :/)
HyunJoong said although it's important to work hard, it's also important to consider the results as well.
HyunJoong really liked Jaejoong because they are able to share a lot of stories together.
HyunJoong said there is music that he wanted to do as well as with Jaejoong. They could actually exchange their music (opinions?). Like making some edits to each other's works.
HyunJoong also said that Jaejoong will definitely write him music right away whenever he asked him to.
HyunJoong said that people are calling him the Asia Star, the Hallyu waves and etc but he thinks he's still too young to be regarded that title. And he said people might think he doesn't appreciate what he's having..

[INTERVIEW] 2PM in April 2012 - Men's Uno Issue No. 109 (Hong Kong magazine)

Posted: 15 Apr 2012 06:45 AM PDT



Eyes of Beasts 2PM

uno/cover
Koreans have a knack for creating idols. Just JYP Entertainment alone can produce two different groups, 2AM and 2PM, which have their own distinctive style. For those who prefer the good boys can choose the ballad group 2AM. For those who prefer the beastly bad boys, it's 2PM. While 2PM was in Hong Kong for their first ever concert, we took the chance to interview them, identifying the "beastly group". This is also their first fashion magazine cover shoot in Hong Kong. Among the many K-pop idol groups who went by the cutesy and innocent image, 2PM stood out with their bad-boy image. As the saying goes, "All women loves bad boys", 2PM captured the hearts of women and even the gay population with their well toned and muscular bodies. Taecyeon's abs and Nichkhun's smile has surpassed cultural differences and captured Asia with their most natural qualities.

Visting Hong Kong again
This is 2PM's first visit to Hong Kong, as their interpreter and nanny, I mentally prepared myself to face and be swarmed by the many fans. From the airport, there were fans that travelled with them from Korea and for the many days after, it were as if we were in the movie "Initial D"**. After the concert, the members went clubbing at Central Hong Kong with dozens of fans waiting for them at the entrance. Fans arrived hours before the Hi Touch event at the mall, filling up all six levels and chanted "2PM I love you" in Korean, heating up the atmosphere. Their endless energy left a deep impression on me after the four days of interaction. Despite performing for hours, the members continued to club till 5AM after the concert, managing only 2-3hours of sleep before ending their Hong Kong trip. Nichkhun said, "We were really excited to come to Hong Kong. During the short stay, we managed to taste authentic Hong Kong cuisine such as Milk Tea and Dim Sum. It's a regret that our schedules are too packed and we didn't have the time to walk around. We're looking forward to visiting Hong Kong again during our break, enjoying the city with a slow and relaxed mood."

Challenging themselves
To an idol group, being busy is a good thing and they understand and are grateful for the blessing. With an average age below 25, their presence on stage is the result of their hard work. Off stage, they are surprisingly mature. They wish to extend to other fields in the industry and not just being confined as an idol. Taecyeon, "Besides singing and dancing, we also compose songs, such as Junsu who has been composing. The other members and I have acted in dramas and movies too. Since we are young, we should try out the different fields, constantly challenging ourselves. Satisfaction comes from overcoming difficulties."

As singing and dancing are not hard to 2PM, I asked what is the hardest, Taecyeon replied without a doubt it is acting. "I am after all too young. I haven't been through many things in life, so I'm lacking in life experience. Life as an actor, to me this contains a certain level of difficulty, I can only improve through experience."

The Korean music industry is currently flooded with newcomers; 2PM has evolved from the shy boys from years back to the confident group who holds their own today. When asked about their way of success, they displayed their true emotions. Chansung said with a smile, "I believe it's our performance and charisma on stage, as compared to other groups we are slightly better. We also have a unique image. The beastly image should be our advantage."

Body-building is a form of mental building
Speaking of advantage, what gives them a head start are their bodies, which are likely to be more built than a fitness trainer. No matter how packed their schedules are in Hong Kong, the six guys always have exercising in their mind. They enquired about the location of the gym the moment we got to the hotel, and before the cover shoot for men's uno, they were up as early as 7.30AM to train to show their best form in front of the camera. "No matter how busy, we spend half an hour exercising every day. Many asked us how we obtained our figures. The answer is simple, sustained daily training and regulation of diet. To us, exercising is not only training our bodies, it's a form of mental training. When we are stressed or feeling down, we exercise. Our mood will be more relaxed after exercising and we are able to face the problems with a more open mind." Junho said.

When asked about how they felt being labeled as "beasts", the six members of 2PM generally think "beasts" stands for the raw characteristics of man. "I look like a good boy but I am someone who likes competing. Healthy competition brings about positive energy." Nichkhun said. "Passion and persistent enthusiasm." Wooyoung and Junsu added. To Chansung, a beastly side stands for desire and ambition. Looking at their determined and confident look, behind the eyes of the beasts, I see men who know what they want in their lives. Just as their name 2PM goes, aim for the highest and brightest**, that's the target of these beastly guys.

**T/N: "Initial D" is a Hong Kong movie about car racing.
** T/N: The original article used a Chinese phrase that describes this and it's in reference to midday that's why the first line is "Just at their name 2PM goes".

Boom then asked ShinYoung, "When was the last time you met up with Sunny?". In reply to Boom's question, ShinYoung said, "As I'm close with Sunny, we drink occassionally", revealing her close friendship with Sunny.
Feeling rather surprised, Boom said, "But I thought Sunny can't drink". Upon hearing that, ShinYoung immediately objected, "What are you talking about? Sunny loves Pear Makgeolli. She'll start telling obscene jokes when she's drinking", revealing Sunny's unique drinking habit.

[NEWS] Miss A's Su-zy Wins Over Critics with Film Debut

Posted: 15 Apr 2012 05:10 AM PDT


If Su-zy of girl group Miss A wasn't most guy's dream date before starring in her debut film "Architecture 101," which was released on March 22, she most probably is now. The movie drew over 2 million viewers last Saturday in just 17 days of its release to climb among the top five films at the domestic box office so far this year.

The 18-year-old suffered critics' ire when she launched her acting career with the drama "Dream High," and many dismissed her as just another young singer trying to migrate over to television without possessing the requisite talent. However, as she proves in her big screen debut, she has enough charm and dedication to her craft to pull it off.

Su-zy said she rehearsed her lines tirelessly and did not hesitate to seek advice from the director and senior actors to ensure she fully got to grips with her character. Her hard work seems to have paid off as she has now attracted a wider fan base including more male fans.

"I can feel my fan base is becoming more diverse as I get a lot of older male followers on my Twitter account," she said.

She said she wants to become recognized as a talented actress by accumulating more life experience and drawing on this to play a diverse range of roles.

However, the apparently inexhaustible teen star said she has no intention to give up her life as a singer. She even found time to practice her choreographed dance moves or hit the gym after wrapping up the day's shooting for "Architecture 101" at dawn.
